  1. Baby leg warmers are a sweet and stylish accessory for any little girl's wardrobe, and these Lacy Leggings are no exception! I created this unique pattern to be a quick and easy crochet project, perfect for a last minute baby gift or a birthday gift for a budding ballerina! These leg warmers look lovely in a solid color, but I have also included instructions for the striped variation shown in the item photos! Available at Lemon Lane Designs on Etsy, or in my Ravelry store.
  2. I'm having a little giveaway over on my Facebook page! I only have a few entries so far, so come on over and check it out! The prize is $5 off in either of my Etsy shops, which may not sound like much, but it will get you a free crochet pattern at Lemon Lane Designs! (And who doesn't love a free pattern?! ) http://www.facebook.com/LemonLaneDesigns/app_228910107186452

  8. Thanks! I love that it is both fun and feminine at the same time!
  9. Thanks so much! This was a really fun challenge for me! And I absolutely loved the results!
  10. Thanks so much for the compliments! I really enjoyed making this one, both times...and I plan on making many more. It's a pattern worth repeating!
  11. Looking for a cute and contemporary baby afghan pattern for that special new arrival? My Carnival Baby Blanket is just the thing! This fun blanket is crocheted in the round and is very versatile. Mix and match as many or as few colors as you want to achieve a personalized look. The repeating stitch pattern is easy to learn, and you can work as many rounds as you want to make a larger or smaller sized afghan! Depending on the colors used, this pattern is suitable for crocheting blankets for both boys and girls. Materials needed: Hook size I/9—5.5mm 3 skeins (6-7 oz. each) Worsted Weight yarn Tapestry needle for weaving in ends Available from my Etsy shop (look in the Crochet Patterns section) or my Ravelry store.
  12. This long, narrow scarf will make a lovely feminine accessory to complement a basic dress or top. The lacy frills look complex, but are really a simple combination of basic crochet stitches, so you’ll be able to create an elegant scarf in just one evening! A variety of looks can be acheived with different types of yarn--from the light airy look of mohair to a more defined stitch using an acrylic yarn. Materials needed: Crochet hook size J/10--6mm 1 skein (3.5 oz/310 yds) medium worsted weight yarn Available from my Etsy shop (look in the Crochet Patterns section) or my Ravelry store.
  13. "Greensleeves was all my joy Greensleeves was my delight, Greensleeves was my heart of gold, And who but my lady greensleeves." I was inspired to create a scarf with lovely, lacy detail while still using simple square construction. Using a quick join-as-you-go method makes assembling this scarf a snap, while also giving you the flexiblity to increase or decrease the length of the scarf as you choose. You may even want to try a using a thinner yarn and hook to create more dainty squares or use multiple colors of yarn for a completely unique look. Available from my Etsy shop (look in the Crochet Patterns section) or my Ravelry store.
  14. Yay for you! I hope you will share some pics in Show-n-Tell. I'd love to see your results!
  15. I finally measured the shawl, and added the finished size info to my original post. Although the mesh gives it some stretch, approx. measurements were 65 in by 12 in. Hope that helps!
